What does GOAL stand for?

At GOAL College, we have changed the rules of school. We are here to help our students find their individual path to success.

GOAL stands for Growth, Opportunity and Active Learning.

It’s in the name, and it’s what we stand for.

Growth

We’re all about helping you to achieve your personal best, and we know that looks different for everyone. While you’re studying with us you’ll grow your skills, your confidence, your knowledge, and – importantly – you’ll grow your employability. 

Your Core Teacher is on hand to help you develop the skills that you’ll need to prepare for your future in the real world after school. They’re there to support you as you explore, learn through your own experiences, and discover your own path.

Opportunity

When you start Year 11, it’s normal to be unsure of what you want to do after school. We recognise that success looks different for everyone, and we are committed to helping our students create the future they want for themselves. 

Our HSC, through its unique subject offerings, and our active involvement with businesses, workplaces and employers, provides opportunities you will not find in other schools.

Active Learning

At GOAL College, we do school differently. We recognise that learning doesn’t only take place in a classroom, and our HSC is structured to encourage learning and activities outside of the traditional classroom setting. 

By undertaking active learning in real community and workplace settings, we help you to develop the workplace and life skills that really matter, and to learn in a way that works for you.

You’ll get out of your comfort zone and make mistakes – but that’s okay. This is where the real learning takes place and you’ll be supported by your mentor teacher all the way.
